Plateau APC Women Task Buhari On Affirmative Principle


CHAMBERLAIN ODEY, JOS – The women wing of the Plateau State chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to uphold and enforce the principle of affirmative action by appointing a good number of women to critical positions and levels of governance as the new administration unfolds.

Speaking in Jos through the trio of Lynda Barau, a former commissioner of Agriculture, Theresa Azi, former transition committee chairman of Jos North LGC, and Rufina Grumyen, a former commissioner for Women Affairs in Plateau State, the state APC women wing maintains that it represents “a voice and a lobby group for the inclusion of all deserving women in governance and politics.”

The women noted that this will afford the female folk the much needed opportunity to make quality contribution to national growth and development.

The group also calls on President Buhari, especially at this auspicious hour when he is settling down to the all-important Nigeria project, to enforce the 35 per cent affirmative action principle as part of fulfilling his campaign promises to the female population in the country.

The State APC women who also used the opportunity to congratulate the President on his hard and well-earned victory in the last elections, also declared that they “stand tall in admiration and defence of the President’s integrity in handling public affairs.”

They commended him on his focus and commitment in the noble fight against corruption, saying they are proudly committed to the mobilization and sensitization of women to work for a new Nigeria and propagate a positive nationalist spirit.

The APC women similarly called on Governor Simon Lalong to also embrace the imperative of fulfilling the 35 per cent affirmative action principle in his ensuing administration, especially as the women folk continually celebrate with him on his historic victory in the recent gubernatorial poll in the state.
